Ho-hum Hanna, "plucky" East Carolina Pirates and suddenly Greenville, NC is a bit big for its britches
They're getting cocky down in Greenville. A visit to the Web site of the town's Daily Reflector newspaper reveals the top headlines: "ECU is two for two" and "Hanna hurries by."
OK, Greenville. We get it. You're having a really good weekend. You've avoided destruction and bested the No. 8 team in the nation in West Virginia. And you're the BMX capitol of the United Sates, according to your Wikipedia page.
Sure, East Carolina has beaten three ranked teams in a row and looks poised to ease through the Conference USA schedule. But c'mon, Greenville. You and your approximate 209,000 residents don't really think you can keep this hot streak up, do you?
We're watching you, Greenville. And as for you, Daily Reflector. Shame. Shame. Just because the city you serve has become infested with braggadocios doesn't mean you need to reflect that bravado ... daily.
We're watching, Greenville. Oh, we're watching.
